Student handbook

DLH International School

 Parent Handbook

2019-2020

 

INTRODUCTION 

Welcome to DLH School 

 Dear parents and students, 

 Thank you for taking the time to read this handbook. Our school’s goal is that your family’s time at DLH memorable experience. We want your family to feel that your time here has been something special, because of lasting memories of encouragement in your child’s spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth are being built. 

 We know that you are interested in your child’s education, so we offer the following suggestions for you to get involved in your child’s education: Take the time to personally introduce yourself to your child’s teachers. Hold high expectations for your child’s achievement. 

 Be an «encourager». Tell your child that he or she can succeed. Be Positive! Give your child unconditional love. A child needs to know that he or she is loved when they try new and sometimes difficult activities. This encourages them to take the risk of making mistakes. People often learn more from mistakes than from successes.

 Make appointments to read to and with your child regularly. 

 Talk with and listen to your child concerning what is being learned at school. Talk with your child’s teachers when you have questions or concerns. Review what your child brings home from school. Praise your child for workwell done. Discuss ways in which your child would like you to help bring about improvement.

 Attend school functions with your child. By doing this, you show your child that you support him or her, and his or her education is important to you. You and the school are a team. We cannot be successful without your help!

 Sincerely,  

AbeerNouou 

Principal

In cases of high achievement, students normally will not be placed a grade level ahead of their expected grade. 

Admission test policy

Admission tests for all grades will be according to the school requirements and policies.

• We are honest with the parents and with ourselves in giving our advice according to his level. 

Student Attendance Policy 

Student Attendance. 

  • DLH is applying this policy for the safety of students. So parents should not drop the student to school before 7:15 am. 
  • Students are required to be in school by 7:30 to 7:45, after that a better excuse, or a parent must call the school in order for the student to be allowed to enter the school
  • School dismissal :

KGs with parents : 2:0

Elementary , Middle and High School 2:40    Buses will leave at 2:20

  • In case of tardiness for the morning line, the student will perform the line-up exercises during the break period and will not be allowed to attend the line-up on this morning.
  • In case of tardiness for the first session until 8:00 am, the student will complete what he missed in the first during the break period and will not be per-mitted to attend the first session.
  • First: parents will be informed. This may occur twice and not more than that.
  • Second: if tardiness past 8:00 occurs more than two excuses will not be accepted and the school will be forced to refuse the student and the parents will be called to meet with the department head to discuss to issue. 
  • Parents have to pick up their children before 3:30, after that , the school will not be responsible for the student safety, and the parent will sign an agreement that  after the mentioned time ,the student will be under the responsibility of the parent.
  • DLH Regulation defines excused absences as those due to temporary illness or injury, and any other reason deemed acceptable by the administration. The administration has the authority to determine whether an absence is excused or unexcused.

Excused absences include:

  • Temporary illness or injury. 
  • An absence which is approved by the administrator of the school.
  • Extended absences due to physical, mental, or emotional disabilities. Documentation from the care provider is required.
  • Emergency, serious illness or death in the family. 
  • Medical and dental appointments which cannot be scheduled outside the regular school day. Documentation from care provider is required.
  • Extremely inclement weather. 
  • Participation in religious observances. 
  • An absence resulting from participation in a work/study program, field trip or athletic competition under the supervision of the school. 

 Absence for Excused Reasons: 

  • Parents are asked to call the school office to report that their child is sick. A student who has a fever is to remain at home until the temperature has returned to normal for 24 hours.
  • Students are expected to attend classes when school is in session. Requests to be absent are to be made to the school headmaster in writing or by telephone early before the absence occurs. This procedure gives opportunity for the school to reflect to the parents the possible effects of the absence and/or together make some alternative study arrangements. Knowing class work and assignments ahead often enables the student to turn in made-up work when he/ she return. Homework not turned in by the due date will normally receive a reduced or zero-percent (0%) grade. Students whose work is marginal should be aware of the possible consequences of missing school—such as poor or non-passing grades. In most cases simply completing homework missed may not result in as high a grade since vital classroom participation is missed. 

If a student’s unexcused absences exceed (5) days in a semester, a recommendation for termination of enrollment may be made by the Principal SAT Attendance Policy:

Starting from grade 9 going to grade 12, the academic year will be divided into 3 semesters. Each semester will account for one third of the final credit per course. Students must attend at least 85% of the course. If the student exceeds the 15% allowed absences, the course will drop.
